Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested Saturday that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has dropped the case against him for alleged campaign finance violations.
“I think they’ve already dropped the case,” Trump told reporters aboard his plane after appearing at a campaign rally in Waco, Texas.
“It’s a fake case. Some fake cases, they have absolutely nothing.”
When asked for comment about Trump’s claim the case has been dropped, Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung told Fox News Digital: “This has been dropped because everyone knows this was a partisan witch-hunt by a radical, leftist DA that sought to politically weaponize the Justice system to influence an election.”
It was reported last week that Bragg’s office would likely issue an indictment for alleged hush-money payments that Trump supposedly made as a presidential candidate in 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels in 2016.
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee have demanded that Bragg testify before Congress about the details of his probe.
On Thursday, Trump issued a blunt statement on Truth Social, asking why Bragg won’t drop the case.
“Why won’t Bragg drop this case? Everybody says there is no crime here. I did nothing wrong!” he wrote.
Trump continued: “This is no legal system; this is the Gestapo, this is Russia and China, but worse. Disgraceful!”
Trump added that Bragg was a “Soros backed animal who just doesn’t care about right or wrong no matter how many people are hurt. He is just carrying out the plans of the radical left lunatics.”
